“Leaving Neverland”, the documentary, was released a couple of months ago but is still causing trouble to Michael Jackson’s personal and professional legacy. After many companies have publicly withdrawn their support over the use of the singer’s name on their products and services, now Mariah Carey has also entered the bill of those who have “cancelled” Jackson in their lives.
According to Blitz magazine, from Portugal, Mariah is planning to remove “I’ll Be There”, one the Jackson 5 biggest hits and the song responsible for Michael Jackson’s stardom, from her setlists. The singer’s decision came after the repercussion of “Leaving Neverland”, a film that puts a spotlight over MJ’s accusations of pedophilia and sexual assault.
Besides Mariah Carey, Drake has also removed the song “Don’t Matter To Me” – a posthumous collaboration with the King of Pop – from his shows.
